Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

Iron Man Helmet Details: The Mark 3
Iron Man Helmet Information: The Mark 3

What is golden and ruby and has the ability to soar at supersonic speeds? The Mark III Iron Man helmet and armor needless to say!

An innovative new ruby and golden themed Iron Man helmet and armor known as the Mark III bows victoriously. Without a doubt, there is more modifications to this than a mere re-spray- its update is truly practical, which we’ll discuss a little later in my article.

A brand new metal invented to put a stop to icing problems was added to the Mark 3, evolving and adding to the look of the Mark 2.

High altitude Flight in the Mark 3

In the motion picture, Robert Downey Jr’s Tony Stark makes the decision to try the thin air ability of the Mark 2 armor. Just as fans will recollect, that almost goes horribly bad since the suit acquires a surface of frost then begins to drop.

Following proper Show biz  style, Tony Stark manages to reset his suit of armor and avoid a big  splat on the street at the very  last possible second.  This permits Tony to place that legendary mind to work at being sure he doesn't come across this difficulty later on.

Solving this issue required a whole new suit which has an alloy that inhibits the ice issue without the need for upsetting power to weight balance. Fortunately for Stark, his authority will allow for him to obtain the correct equipment to repair the woes of the Mark 2.

The product is a gold hued alloy for the suit, where his previous model was a sleek brushed aluminum tint.

But that wasn’t the last of Tony’s fiddling- he had to put his signature unique seal of approval on his armor certainly!

Stark Style

Requesting “a little hot red rod” to be included in the general appear of the Mark 3, Tony places his unique touch to the project

And that is just what JARVIS actually does- this is basically the 1 time we come across this oh so memorable style of the golden and red version, some folks would say perfected in the comic version by Bob Layton’s classic artwork.

Dissimilarities Among Motion picture vs Comic Versions

Although it is not an item of controversy, the reasons for the gold and red paint scheme are different in the movie versus comic book worlds.

In the movie portrayal, we see the reason for the hotrod red explained as being basically about style.

The color of one of Tony’s alma maters is the explanation provided in the comic universe. You will find fan favorite versions for example the Hulkbuster, nevertheless the golden and red color is best known as IronMan’s design.

The Mark III Helmet

This is essentially the first time we’re supplied a decent look at the face mask up close and personal when Tony prepares himself to get rid of his weapons and suits up.

Exactly the same  brushed steel look is evident  as we get a good look at the Mark  3 for the very first time, although  it's been covered in gold and ruby.

Despite the fact that the kind of the Mark III Iron Man helmet and armor aren’t a radical departure in comparison with the prior technology, it really makes a vibrant visual assertion which fans appreciate from the bottom of their hearts.
